Gay Marvel exec Victoria Alonso has spoken about the lack of LGBT+ representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Across the 20 films in the Marvel universe that have debuted since 2008, zero have featured visible LGBT+ characters.
Victoria Alonso, the executive vice president of production at Marvel Studios, addressed the lack of diverse representation in an interview with the BBC.
The Argentina-born Alonso said: “I think we haven’t represented the Latin community, in general. I think that’s something we have to do better. I’m Latin, I can tell you that I’m longing for that. The gay community has not been represented whatsoever. I’m gay, so I can tell you that I would long for that.”
